. there's been a lot of bumps, pretty big bumps along the way, and it has to do with new entrance into the u.s. as a country, as a political system. again, primarily through immigration. pushing the envelope, as it were, certainly from the standpoint of the majority established community. there's one example, and that's the experience of roman catholics in this country. again, because of major migrations from europe, but in that wave, primarily from roman catholic countries, you know, ireland and italy and poland and so forth, this was profoundly unsettling to the mainstream protestant establishment, and there were tensions and conflicts, but violence in places like philadelphia, fringe, -- for instance, where the original campus of bellanova was torched to the ground. that's in philadelphia, and one of the reasons, the real reason the precipitating reason had to do with bible reading in the public schools and whether, you know, catholic kids would be allowed to read, you know the delayed version rather than the king james version, and there were riots in the street, and the gover
